Evaporation-Combustion Affected by In-Cylinder, Reciprocating Porous Regenerator


An existing in-cylinder thermal regeneration concept for Diesel engines is examined for the roles of the porous insert motion and the fuel injection strategies on the fuel evaporation and combustion and on the engine efficiency. While the heated air emanating from the insert enhances fuel evaporation resulting in a superadiabatic combustion process (thus… (More)
